This place was exactly what I needed. I landed in Chania airport and took taxi directly to hotel. This was 17 euros and took maybe 15 min
As it was early in the morning I didn't expected to be checked in; I wanted to chill by the pool on the sun. But I was very pleasantly surprised when lady showed me my room, quickly explained few rules about key and breakfast and of I went.
I spend whole day by the water and can I say what a beautiful view! What you have behind hotel is private bay with crystal clear water and places with umbrellas on rocks where you can leave your water and stuff and also lie down and sunbathe. Loved it! No need to drive to beach.
I had Greek salad for dinner and watched sun set while sitting by the pool. When I say a dinner the portion was size of my lunch and dinner and breakfast together ;-))) with fresh bread and typical Crete rusk (which is hard crouton type of bread pieces)
Next day I woke up to freshly made breakfast; freshly squeezed orange juice and had chat to Maria who was amazingly helpful. I mentioned that I wanted to visit city and come back in the afternoon to catch some more rays. I didn't need to finish the sentence there she was on the phone booking it for me. The taxi promptly arrived and dropped me just at the top of the old city of Chania; this cost me 10 euros and he even stopped for me at the top of the hill so I can get out and take pictures of harbour. Journey back to hotel was also as quick and taxi stand was easy to find as all of them were lined up just by the square.
My flight on onward journey was next day early in the morning; I don't need to mention that Maria booked this for me already.
I had the pleasure of meeting George the owner of the place and we had a chat about area while I also paid for my room. What a lovely man! At no point I felt that I was dealing with just some hotel staff, everyone was so sooooo lovely friendly and helpful like a big family. I got massive hug from lady that was in charge in the evening and I was ready to fly next morning.
The taxi arrived early and even waited for me until I got ready.
I will definitely be back, this place gives me the quiet relaxation I needed away from party island and rush or tourist; also I didn't feel I was missing out on not having a car as taxi took me wherever I wanted to go and was so so easy to organise one.
I was worried that the noise from airport would disturb my stay; but I saw 2 jets in one day and one or two planes; yes you can hear those when they fly over; but that took 5 min out of my 24 hrs day ....
I would recommend this place 200%, I can't find anything wrong with it :-)))
